Old Oct 25th, 2004, 01:19 PM        Getting GTA:SA tonight?
Who knows maybe some have it already even but probably not by "ethical" means.

My Gamestop is supposed to be going to get it directly from the airport at around 5pm tonight and should have it in the store by 7pm. Plan on buying it then otherwise I'll be camping out at Walmart tonight at midnight

Meh. I'll probably play it and enjoy it, but it doesn't look like they've changed/improved enough things to warrant a midnight purchase.

Boogie, there are plenty of changes in this one. The massive size alone is worth it but there are quite a few more gameplay additions. More than from GTA3-VC.

It is coming to PC soon after the Playstation release. And on the poster I saw of the game in EB it had the Xbox symbol next to playstations, so maybe

Yeah I was lazy earlier. To name some:

Size (5 times larger than Vice City)
Swimming (woohoo)
Hair Cuts
More transportation
More fighting styles
More customization on cars
New skills like stealth (yeahooo)
Food system (get fat)
Bike tricks
Gym workouts (get buff)
Robbery (rob people's houses)
New audio technology (more specifically, realistic contextual audio distortions, like when you are listening to a conversation through a wall or driving through a tunnel)
More music (all from the 90's)
Cops can now climb onto your car
35-50% more polygons than from previous GTA games
New lightning system (sets different moods and makes the visuals more impressive)
Basketball

I heard that SA had ragdoll physics, is that true?
But that might just be on the PC version.

some more info after some early reviews

Co-Op Mode - 2 player rampages: either in a car or on foot. The screen is not split. There are also many other two player features, presumably gambling games and the minigames basketball and pool.
Use your camera to take pictures of things and save them to your memory card
You must spray over a possible 100 other opposing gang tags around the cities with your own gang sign and a spraypaint can, for a part of the 100%
Oysters are the equivalent of the underwater hidden package, find them all for a reward
Horseshoes also need to be found, (speculation: maybe the new hidden package)?
Full radio listings, to be posted shortly
The addition of girlfriends in the game, who'll you'll have to please to get something in return
There is dancing in the game, DDR style, which is used to impress dates
You learn to parachute (either from a plane or base-jumping) from a flight school
There are hovercrafts, and even a forklift
Play poker, craps, blackjack, wheel of fortune, or slots
The annoucement of the following voice actors:
Carl Johnson - Young Maylay
Sweet Johnson - Faizon Love
Ryder - MC Eiht
Cesar - Clifton Collins Jr
Kendl Johnson - Yo Yo
Zero - David Cross
OG Loc - Jonathan Anderson
Frank Tenpenny - Samuel L. Jackson
Maddog - Ice T
The Truth - Peter Fonda
Wu Zi Mu - James Yaegashi
Ran Fali (Farlie) - Hunter Platin
Mike Torreno - James Wood
Maccer - Shaun Ryder
Eddie Pulaski - Chris Penn
Officer Hernandez - Armando Riesco
Jizzy B - Charlie Murphy
T-Bone Mendez - Kid Frost
Ken Rosenberg - William Fichtner

Samuel L. Jackson? Peter Fonda? Chris Penn? James Woods? A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!!

I lost bladder control, when reading about the features and the voice actors. I want this game so badly.

Yeah the voice list is pretty impressive but they usually have some good voice talents. Getting Ray Liotta for VC was awesome. Carl Johnson is supposed to be the main character so hopefully this Young Maylay is good.

And andy dick is doing a gardening show on the talk radio thing.

I'm getting mine tomarrow.

As for ragdoll physics I heard they are using somethign called impact animation, which is what they used in Manhunt, some people say its the same thing I don't really know.

Another fact: you can steal any aircraft now (including commerical airliners) And you can parachute out of them (after taking a flying school thing). You can also hijack trains I believe.

The PC version comes out next year, sony has it as an exclusive until then, so if there was an Xbox, it wont be until the PC one comes out.
